A Bank Holiday weekend in the UK, early May, the usual trip for us would be three nights around norhern France. Hang on though...weather forecast is okay, the exchange rate with the Euro is diabolical and my wife and child have never been to the north east of England - now's the time then.
This hotel certainly looked the part, the reviews were good so away we went and to be fair it really was excellent. A grand entrance, a lovely room and welcoming staff. Spa facilities are great and breakfast good. Its not the cheapest hotel you'll ever stay in but nor does it pretend to be. Good external play area for kids as well.
Glitches, and they are minor - a portable size TV in a big room isn't great ( I know, I know, what do you go away for to watch TV anyway? We don't, but try relating this to a seven year old).
On our last morning a lot of items were missing at breakfast, it had been a busy weekend though and we'll leave it at that.
The north east is one of Englands more diverse areas, don't avoid some of the traditional working class towns because of reputation, they really are making an effort and worth a visit.
